The Secrets of Your Spine

By Sara Butler

Your spine has been keeping secrets from you! Unless you’re an anatomy expert, there are probably a few things you don’t know about your spine. Part of the chiropractor’s job is to educate you about your spine and its health. The more you know, the more proactive you can be with your overall health, spinal health, and wellness. Here are a few things the chiropractors at The Joint want you to understand about your spine.

You Spine Should Be Curved

When you’re told to sit up straight, what is really meant is to sit in a way that helps to maintain the natural curves of your spine. Your spine isn’t meant to be straight -- it’s meant to be curved! The curvature of the spine is what makes it strong. In fact, the curves of your spine are what allow your spine to handle so much stress and strain to support your body weight.

You’re Shrinking

As you get older, your spine is shrinking! And that’s completely normal.

People do shrink as they get older because the natural space between the spine gets smaller and the discs between the bones in your spine shrink. It may be a natural occurrence, but that doesn’t mean it can’t cause problems. This is where your chiropractor comes in handy. They can help you guide your spine through the aging process with fewer complications.

Your Spine Protects Something Really Important

Of all the jobs your spine has, one of the most important is the protection of your central nervous system. Your central nervous system is the system in charge of every single function of your body. If it’s not working at its very best, free from restriction, then your body can’t work as optimally as it was made to.

Chiropractic care targets the joint dysfunctions and restrictions that could be impacting how your central nervous system is functioning. Once these are resolved, then your body can work like the well-oiled machine it was meant to be.

Chiropractors could spend all day waxing poetic about how amazing your spine is. It’s the key to your health and wellness, which is why it’s so important to care for it appropriately.  Let your chiropractor help to guide you to better health by understanding how your spinal health fits into the bigger picture!
